This letterbox is hidden along a historic alley, and under a fabulous old intact stone-supported bridge...Park in the parking area, or on the street, and walk all the way up the alley to the top (past the stone building on the right which used to be called the "Stonehouse" and served the best prime rib this side of the mississippi:) Climb up under the bridge on the left side farthest rafter behind the rock placed there to hid it, is a pencil box containing the letterbox log book, and handmade (by my kiddos) stamp!
Hope you enjoyed your little stroll down (up) the alley!
